lated in a strange manner with great skill;
and the soft green overglaze, with its
splashes of blue and purple, is a poem of
sweet harmonious colour. The richness of
the overglaze is rendered still more effec-
tive by contrast with the dull earth and the
partial underglaze. The very roughness of
the pot thus contributes to its value. No
machine-like perfection of form, no hard-
ness and rigidity of outline, no floral nor
other painted subjects are to be found in
or upon it.

But it is, nevertheless, a witness 01 art
applied to the potter's craft, for the coun-
terpart of which we may seek in vain
among the works of many of the great
potters of modern Europe.
